Domain Trusts not working. No Logon servers available to service the request.

Morning Experts,

We currently have one domain called "ABC" (Windows 2003) and have created a new domain "DEF" (Windows 2008).  Both domains are are the same IP range and same subnet within the same network and use the same DNS servers.  I would like the  users to be able to access servers (NAS) on both domains.  I have set up the domain trusts but seem to be having some issues.  Servers on the ABC domain can access the shares with the DEF domain with no issues but when try to open a share from the DEF the to ABC domain I get the follow error \\NAS-SERVER is not accessible.  You might not have permissions to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator to find out of you have access permission.  There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request."   I am trying the with the administrator account the on DEF domain.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Are you sure your DNS configuration is OK? Do you use AD integrated zones? How names are resolved in your environments?

What do I need to check.  My knowledge on DNS isn't up there.  And not using AD intergrated Zones.

What are your DCs IP addresses? What DNS servers your clients use?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

ABC domain 192.168.2.6 and DEF domain 192.168.2.48.  DNS Servers are 192.168.2.6 and 192.168.2.8

This is definitely wrong. Windows client will use the first DNS and never will "ask" second one if the first one is working.
You should configure forwarding on DNS for ABC domain and configure all your clients to use only ABC domain DNS servers.
Then it should work as you expect.

Thats how its currently setup.  DEF is using ABC domains DNS servers

gtworekCommented:
As DNS servers? As forwarders?
You did not describe your environment but I'm sure something is not OK with your DNS infrastructure...

The DNS will be is being provided by the ABC domain.  DEF is able to browse the web and so on using ABC dns server (192.168.2.6.  What do I need to check on DNS on both domains?

gtworekCommented:
If so - why did you set 192.168.2.8 on your clients?
0
 
Simon2301Author Commented:
Our clients pick up 192.168.2.6 and 192.168.2.8 from DHCP.  Just incase 2.6 falls over.

gtworekCommented:
And what is 192.168.2.8? Is it the second server for ABC?

Simon2301Author Commented:
yes

Simon2301Author Commented:
abc can view a nas on def without issues the problem is def seeing the nas on abc

gtworekCommented:
Is nas registered in DNS you use?
Did you try to access nas using FQDN?

Just tried it and now getting "has-server.abc.local is not accessible.  You might not have permissions to use this network resource.  The servers clock is not synchronised with the primary domain controllers clock"

I have tried running net time \\print-server / set /y (print is our ntp) and its returning with system 5 error access is denied.

I have tired setting the permission on the has with abc domain but it can find def\administrator
